    I voted Skip It. We couldn’t find one we liked either so we kind of made our own. We’re using action figures from one of our favorite TV shows. 🙂 Totally us! 😀

    I misread the question, too and accidentally voted yes.  I think you could definitely skip it.  We are!  I didn’t like cake toppers in gneral, so we’re either putting nothing up there, or a few flowers.

    oops i clicked the wrong button…i meant YES you can skip it!

     im finally reeeally learning that your wedding should be whatever you want it to be. if you dont find a wedding topper that you like, then don’t force it! if you feel like topping the cake with your favorite photo of the two of you, or fresh flowers, or nothing at all, more power to you and im sure your wedding will still be great and reflect you and your man’s style!!!

    For pictures of cakes with out cake toppers, check the gallery. A lot of the cakes there (mine included), don’t have toppers! 🙂

    OOPS!  Sorry I read "can I skip the cake topper" and I clicked yes! OOps but i meant to push No for do I need a cake topper! I think that if  you haven’t found one that you truely like then you don’t need to have one!

    Skip it. Unless we find a super cool vintage topper, we probably won’t have one.

    whoops, also clicked the wrong answer, hehe. anyway, definitely skip it if you can’t find anything you like. there’s really no need for it, it’s just eye candy. now, i DID find a topper i liked =) so we’re having one! it’s from the small object on etsy and i like that after the wedding, we can display it in our home as a little piece of art and reminder of our wedding day!

    Skip it if you don’t want it! I’m just using flowers cause I’m not super traditional! But I have friends that used their parents vintage cake topper for 3 wedding and just repainted the little people to fit their style =D It was a great idea and something they loved

    I also am skipping the cake topper. I didn’t find anything that inspired me…now we aren’t even sure that we want cake.

    Definitely skip it if you want…actually, my cake maker prefers it when people don’t want cake toppers.  She says they can sometimes be very difficult to incorporate into the design.

    I guess I’m in the minority here but I think that there are so many fun ones and it can bring some humor to the wedding.

    i’m skiping it too because it’s hard to incorporate the traditional cpuple to the cake desing… so, flowers will be!

    I mis-read the poll, too!

    No one’s forcing you to have a cake topper, and no one will notice if you don’t have one, either!

    Just remember: always do what you feel comfortable with, never do what you feel forced to do.

    I also didn’t find any cake toppers that I liked that "went" with our wedding, but I didn’t want just a plain, flat top on our cake either…. so we had our florist create a little arrangement to sit on top of the cake.  I thought it looked perfect!
